Re: need to engrave hull ID number on older boat

I have a hull number but it's not where the Mexican inspectors want to see it and I want to make it look like it's been there since the boat was built. I thought of engraving it and then regelcoating over it but it would be hard to match perfectly.
If I do the metal plaque route it would be easy but I'm not sure it would convince them I haven't rebadged a potentially stolen boat.

Zehag - you have me confused with some lucky guy that is already in Mexico, I will be there in November. Being in Mexico what would you do in this situation?

Maybe I'm overreacting to the stuff that went on earlier this year.
